I just love getting the crockpot out and making something wonderful! (Corny sounding, I know ;) Water bath canning is so simple and easy once you have all your equipment out and great produce. I like being able to see all the full gleaming jars and get a satisfied feeling when I know exactly whats in it, etc.
I ended up with a dozen pint jars of apple butter and 10 pints of pear butter. Up next is reg and tomitillo salsa.
